Our women are strong, independent, feminine: they dress to please themselves first, to always feel at ease in their skin and “in their shoes”. We believe that Valentina Rangoni shoes contain elements that are difficult to find together: style & refinement, quality with comfort and wearability.
Our brand is for us a mission of female and youth emancipation, as we believe that only a woman can really put herself “in the shoes” of another woman: therefore, we design women’s shoes that we would like to wear first to face life every day, always feeling our best.
As young women and entrepreneurs we want to fight the stereotypes and the strong male hegemony that we first encountered within the Italian and international footwear industry. We want to give more voice to the women of the sector, to their creativity and their needs while promoting a sustainable and ethical brand.
THE SQUAD – BECAUSE WHEN WOMEN SUPPORT EACH OTHER, INCREDIBLE THINGS HAPPEN.
THE DESIGNER – VALENTINA RANGONI
Stubborn, creative and curious, this is how Valentina Rangoni describes herself. Florentine by birth, Valentina is the eldest of three sisters and grew up with the passion for her footwear passed on by her father Niccolò and grandfather Ugo Rangoni, founder of the historic Amalfi by Rangoni brand in 1934. Valentina is a dynamic girl, she has a passion for classical music and a degree in opera singing; and it is her deep love for everything that is art, her curiosity and the great traditions of the Rangoni brand that pushed Valentina to obtain a Diploma in Shoe Design and thus to follow her creative spirit and to create a line of shoes that is made for women by women, with a totally feminine team, and give life to a new world: “Valentina Rangoni”.
THE MARKETING GEEK – CAROLINA RANGONI
28 years old business graduate with a passion for fashion and art, Carolina has been studying management around Europe discovering different cultures and wearing lot of shoes across her incredible trips! She then took the marketing and communication direction of the brand. Together with Valentina they team up with a clear and strong brand vision and mission, to a more equal world for women in the future, starting by the real bottom, the shoes they put on each day!
“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves.
We have to step up as women and take the lead”
